ArchiveBox! :wub:  Finally I can get rid of my 50+ browser tabs and hundreds of bookmarks that kept getting out of date!

image.png.a1cd3926c1f588158fd3cf9df1981f7d.png

 

First impressions:
* UI/UX could be better. Not a fan of pink color.
* Tag management feels clumsy - but it's there and seems to be working.
* User management and default settings aren't well documented. But in the end it works and that's all I care about.

 

Thanks @whoknows!
